Seattle Mariners at Minnesota Twins Free MLB Picks with Odds and Predictions
by Chad Matthews - 5/15/2014
The Seattle Mariners head to the Twin Cities to take on the Minnesota Twins. Friday's game will be the first of a three-game series. Seattle loaded up on the offseason with the additions of catcher John Buck and second baseman Robinson Cano. The Mariners sit at .500 40 games into the 2014 campaign. Today the Mariners will hand the ball to Chris Young. Young has come storming out of the gate this season to a perfect 3-0 record, posting an impressive 2.63 ERA.
The Minnesota Twins are off to a similar start in their season, sitting just one game under .500. The Twins will send Kyle Gibson to the mound. Gibson is 3-3 with a 4.74 ERA. Gibson couldn't get it done in his last time out against the Detroit Tigers as he was hammered for six runs in the first two innings before getting benched.
Mariners at Twins Betting Odds and Angles
The Mariners are listed at -102 on the money line, with the "over/under" set at 8.0. Seattle is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings, and the Twins are just 10-27 their last 37 Friday games. Both teams are 5-5 SU their last 10 games, and the Mariners are coming into today's game on a full day of rest.

With almost even odds, it's hard not to side with Chris Young and the Mariners. The Mariners have a lot of young offensive talent, and with Young on the mound today facing Gibson, who was just exposed his last time out, I see this as a chance for the Mariners bats to awaken. Take the Mariners on the money line.
